By popular demand

The one and only Count Basie, playing One O'Clock Jump in, I think, 1955 (there are several recordings). Enjoy.


  1. Thank you for this Helen. The kid from Red Bank. Red Bank NJ is 5 miles away from where I live in Sea Bright, NJ. Red Bank recently unvieled a statue of Count Basie and there is a Theatre there named in his honor. The Count Basie Theatre is a great place to see musicians and plays!


  2. Right, next time I'm over on the side of the Pond I shall head to Red Bank NJ.
